Q&A: Are non-Muslim women obliged to wear khimar and jilbab in the Khilafah?

Q&A: Are non-Muslim women obliged to wear khimar and jilbab in the Khilafah?

Salaams Sheikh

My question is on an article in the Constitution. In article 7, clause 4 or clause D from the English translation of the second edition 2010, it is stated: "The non-Muslims will be treated in matters related to foodstuffs and clothing according to their faith and within the scope of what the Shari'ah rules permit". My question is related to clothing.

Will non-Muslim women be allowed to wear any clothing as long as it covers the bodies and is modest, such as long dresses or trousers and a shirt? Or will they be required to wear Khimar and Jilbaab like the Muslim women?

How was the non-Muslim women's dress dealt with throughout Islamic history? i.e. were they allowed to wear what they wanted or was the Islamic dress enforced upon them.

May Allah reward you!
